Reviews

9.7 Hempstalls Hall Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.684)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Hempstalls Hall Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hempstalls Hall Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.809 for Hempstalls Hall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (168 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.809

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hempstalls Hall Care Home is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.875

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I came for a weeks respite in August; it was my first ever respite so I was very anxious. The staff made me feel at ease straight away; my room was faultless. I have enjoyed my stay, the company, the food, the entertainment and the lovely garden.
I would not hesitate to come back for respite again.

Dad went to the above care home for 5 weeks respite care. I cannot speak highly enough of all staff and management. A very happy and caring establishment that was flexible in meeting all my dad's needs. I have no hesitation in recommending this home.

As a carer myself I was very sceptical about my grandmother going in. However, I was proven wrong, it was amazing in every way. Nothing was too much trouble, grandmother was in for a short respite stay and was treated with full respect and dignity. There was full communication throughout, and I had a huge sense of relief knowing all her needs were catered for. I can't thank everyone at the Hempstalls enough.

My mum had a recent respite stay here. Staff responded very quickly to our request for an assessment and we were able to arrange a speedy admission which was needed. Staff were very friendly, helpful and did as much as possible to make my mum and us welcome. The care staff do their utmost to ensure that care is individualised which was appreciated. The home and gardens are beautiful and there are lots of social activities to get involved in.

The above care home is heaven sent. My Mother has been in Hempstalls Hall for the past 6 years. The only reason I have had to move her is because she requires nursing care now.
I cannot fault anything at Hempstalls Hall all I have is praise. The home is run to a high standard, the carers are marvellous people and the care is second to none. It is with great regret that I have had to move my Mum from this home.
I would highly recommend anyone to use Hempstalls Hall.

We are happy that mum is encouraged to do as much as possible for herself here and this means that she gets about with a zimmer frame because of the encouragement. Everyone is always very welcoming towards visitors.
One request though; it would be nice if staff could find the time to sit more with mum one to one and have a chat. She really loves a quiet chat and much prefers it to socialising in a big group. I feel this would really help her general well-being.
Thank you all.

Although the ratings speak for themselves I confirm they reflect the knowledge I have received in the occasions that my ex husband (a victim to dementia) availed himself at Hempstalls Hall in connection with the respite care programme. The warmth and cheerfulness of the staff most tangible and transmits itself to the residents.

Mu husband has Alzhiemers and mobility problems. This March was the third time he has been into Hempstalls for respite. It was brilliant and good for me too so that I could have a rest from being his only carer. The family call it Grandads 5 star hotel. The care he receives and the quality of the home itself lives up to that. He is entertained, take out and made to feel at home. It's the best.

I couldn't be happier with Hempstalls and couldn't consider moving mum to another. I've scored excellent in all the survey boxes. The home has a great atmosphere. A second activities staff member has been added which shows real commitment to stimulating the residents. I was most impressed when a staff member said two of them had given a resident a clean and said 'she looks lovely', clearly looking after the lady was a joy not a chore.

I visit the care home, notwithstanding the reason of doing so. I must say Hempstalls Hall is a fine care home. The surroundings are fine. The staff are efficient and pleasant and helpful, especially with any queries. The rooms are very clean as well as the rest of the home. My sister won't appreciate the full extent of her care but I know she is receiving it.

Finding oneself in the daunting position of having to choose a care home for a parent who has recently been widowed I cannot overstate how happy I am with Hempstalls Hall as a choice. The ethos from Home Manager to the Handy Man is the same throughout. What the resident needs is everyone's primary concern. "ITS THEIR HOME!" It's a comfortable, clean modern environment. Not too large only 40 residents over 2 floors, larger homes may have proved too daunting for my Mother. I also believe the level of care can be more personal in in this small cosy environment. On moving in she was met and welcomed by The Manager, a Senior care worker, a junior care worker, the Head Chef, The Events Organiser, even the Administrator made herself known. This caring sincerity has continued to this day. Mum has made some very good new friends, and the new increased mobility, and socialising have given her a new lease of life. My only regret is that my Father never got to experience this as well! Hempstalls Hall is a model for others to aspire to. Everyone who asks me where my Mum ended up has said what good things they have heard about Hempstalls Hall. I think it has the best reputation in the area. I would unreservedly recommend it. It isn't cheap for a self-funded resident, but lesser quality places aren't really worth the saying.
